[Good Spirits News] GSN Review: Kentucky Senator Release #4 John Sherman Cooper Bourbon

August 1, 2023

Ah, bourbon. If you were to try and explain what it is to someone who has never tasted it, one scent of this new release would paint a thousand words. Woody, sweet, nutty, spicy, and somehow carrying the Kentucky summer heat. The entry is exceptionally smooth for a near cask strength whiskey, and only carries a slight burn. The flavors are light and airy, with the flavor of the oak and its char carrying the day. The finish is very long, with a tannic finality. A terrific sipper, especially over a large single rock, this latest JSC release hits all the right buttons. GSN Rating: A

June 22, 2023

Kentucky Senator Bourbon Release #4 “Senator John Sherman Cooper” is now hitting shelves across the state of Kentucky and online via Bourbon Outfitter with an SRP of $134.99. Aged eight years in oak barrels, this Bourbon is 107 proof with a mash bill of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley. I had the pleasure of attending a recent barrel tasting party (how fun does that sound?!) by co-founders Damon Thayer and Andre Regard, and it was certainly not a bad day on the job;) These guys are having fun and enjoying the moment which is what Bourbon is all about. I enjoy seeing their passion and enthusiasm for what they are doing and creating in their brand.

[Bourbon Lens] 4th Release in Series Unveiled by Kentucky Senator Bourbon

May 17, 2023

Bourbon Lens Thoughts: The team at Kentucky Senator Bourbon has just announced the 4th release in their series of whiskies honoring prominent U.S. Senators from Kentucky. Bearing the same Mashbill as their last two releases, this release will feature whiskey aged for 8 years. Prior releases of Kentucky Senator have impressed us for their familiar Kentucky Bourbon profiles while packing in a lot of bold flavors and weighing in at a solid 107 proof. We discussed Batch 1 & 2 of Kentucky Senator back on Bourbon Lens Episode 133. The limited releases bear a premium price point and the whiskey is equally premium in quality and packaging. We look forward to the opportunity to taste this and future releases in the series.
